Round 4 of the MotoAmerica series from Pittsburgh International Race Complex was a bit of mixed bag for the North American Warhorse, Competition Werks Ducati V4R Superbike squad. With the continued absence from action by team rider, PJ Jacobsen, the team acquired experienced superbike rider Jake Lewis. Coming into the race the weekend, the team was also facing a new wrinkle in their plans to continue in the Stock 1000cc Championship. Jake’s previous experience in the Superbike class meant that he would have to compete solely in that class. The uphill battle just became a mountain to climb. Would Jake be able to adapt to the Ducati in time? What does the team’s future hold with PJ still recovering? Is this the building of a 2021 superbike powerhouse that is now able to use 2020 as their proving grounds for a full attack on the 2021 season?
The team is made possible through key partners: North American Warhorse, Ducati New York, Ducati USA, Competition Werkes, EVOL Technology, New York Safety Track, Fast by Ferraci, and Admore Air.
